Paper Abstract

We have entered an era of large CCD mosaic camera construction with many observatories developing large mosaic focal planes for wide field cameras and spectrographs. In this review, we outline the history of CCD mosaic development, describe the current state of the art while illustrating the many projects underway, and attempt to peer into the future.
